Leading Man, Family Matters, Stacy Edwards, Marriage

  I was in the bread aisle when my husband called me. He needed me to buy band-aids and gauze and some medical tape. That’s never a good thing. My three year old had fallen in the bathroom and had a pretty nasty gash on her chin. I got the items and headed to the […]

Being a Man

Written by:   |  Found in: Grace, Marriage, Parenting  |  1 Comment »

{Originally published in 2012}   One of today’s greatest challenges for men is teaching our own sons what it means to be a man. I was raised in the Judeo-Christian work ethic and taught that I should work hard to become a good provider for my family. Seems easy enough. But my father had a […]

Men Must Pursue, Grace Based Parenting, Joey Espinosa, Family Matters

  When I was a young, immature, and foolish new Christian, I remember arguing with a female friend about who was to blame for the first sin in the Garden of Eden. To me, it was obvious that since Eve took the first bite of the forbidden fruit, that we should blame her. It wasn’t […]

Father's Day, Family Matters Blog, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Grace Based Parenting, DIY

  I don’t know about you, but my husband and father are the hardest people to shop for.  They either get what they want from the tool store or they want a boat.  Gift cards are boring and I can’t just go out and buy a boat. I have a hunch that I am not […]
